- Put them in a scrapbook. I used to do this when I was a child and saved all my holiday/birthday/valentine cards in a scrapbook. I used to hate it when my mom made me do it, but when I was home over the holidays I found a couple of theses old scrapbooks and it brought back many fond memories. Over time I had forgot some of the little details of who I was friends with, the funny cards that were sent my way, etc. It was really enjoyable to look over these old cards again!
- If the front part of the card is not written on you can cut it out from the back part (make sure to recyle the back part) and reuse it as a postcard the following year or a unique gift tag for one of your presents.
- Cut your cards into decorative tree ornaments.
- Bring your cards into a local daycare center to be used as arts and crafts projects.
